For his next trick, Tom Cole will try to make water wetter. From Hotline
OK Rep. Tom Cole, a former RNC executive director, is telling colleagues that Republicans can prevent losses in the 2006 midterm elections if they successfully define Democrats as carping critics who favor surrender in Iraq, higher taxes and more government spending...
Cole suggests stirring up "a little paranoia" among Republican base voters to motivate them to vote.
Let's see. So far they're stirred up about the impending loss of Christmas, all those scary Mexicans and men in black robes who want to ban the Bible and force their kids to have gay sex as they pull the plug on brain dead accident victims. If they want to fit some more paranoia into their base they're going to have to pound it in with a mallet.
